Thread: Phrases to ban

    Default Phrases to ban

    There are certain phrases or words that get used as part of our collective CMON vocabulary that I would be happy to never hear again. I will give an example; please feel free to add your own!

    \"It\'s not coolphotoornot.com...\"
    No, but how can I properly rate something I can\'t see? Bad pic=diminished rating.

    Ok, feel free to chime in now, but play nice :D

    A phrase I\'d love to see go the way of the dodo is...
    (drum-roll)
    The voting here is so unfair! I just had a mini drop from a 9.5 to a 9.4. I hate snipers!
    ;)

    My pet irritations:

    This Sux,

    Mobile phone Text message writing,

    What is NMM? lol

    and last but not least :

    What colour do you paint Blood Angels?

    Can\'t stand that mobile text writing, surely it takes more effort to write:

    h0w d1d u d0 that m8? Its 5w33t

    than just to use plain english. After typing that in I\'ve proven that point to myself :)

    So long as we don\'t ban any offensive phrases, a day\'s not complete until I\'ve offended at least one person ;)

    \"This is my first (company name here) miniature\"

    And your point is....?

    Oooh...

    \'comments please\'

    \'please look at my new mini\'

    \'what paints should I use?\'

    \'Are Vallejo\'s any good?\'

    \'why did my minis rating drop with one vote?\'

    \'cute\'

    \'pro painted/er\'

    \'are GW evil?\'

    umm... probably a few others, but I\'ll have to go think about it.

    :D

    Ooooh I\'ve used that one! But I can see that is could be irritating, but if for example you are a Rackham virgin then I can possibly excuse that. Especially if you are then pointing out issues with the sculpt or quality of casting.

    Propaintjob: you\'ve offended me. ;) I detest the term Mate, I have a colleague at work who constantly called everyone \"Mate\" until it was forcibly pointed out that :
    1. We are not sexual partners
    2. We are not in the Navy
    3. We worked with him
    4. He hasn\'t got any to start with (Billy No-mates)


    It goes along with the patronising \"Darling\" that I get from one woman user at work.

    How about...

    \'looks a bit too cartoony for my liking\'

    \'great paintjob, hate the figure\'

    \'snow bases - how do I make one?\'

    It\'s a really good mini. You should try NMM to take it to the next level.

    I\'m admittedly not a huge fan of NMM but both tolerate and appreciate it. But the above phrase (and it\'s various paraphrases) drive me up the wall, over the top, though mine-infested no mans land, through a few more trenches and up another wall.

    \'This Rox!\' and similar comments without any constructive critisism.....

    oh, and \'it\'s not coolpaintjobornot.com\'...which implies we vote for the quality f the mini instead of the paintjob, which is what we\'re actually doing.....grmmmmbblll...

    and the glorious snipy whiny comments ofcourse....

    oh, and everything Dragonsreach says ;):P:P:Plollollollollollollollollollollol

    Default I hate when people say..

    \"in retrospect, viewing that particular pewter model sculpt of a scaled down fictional orc character, I find that the overall greenness of the skin adds an air of believabilty to an otherwise fantastical situation. And furthermore, I suggest that the orc character is indeed a metaphor for the dark side of the human experience, lending credibility to the fact that indeed man is inherently evil\"


    That is just soooo cliche\'

    Two words:

    \"Another Mini\"

    ... yeah, I kinda guessed that, how long does it take you to come up with these clever, descriptive titles?

    (I guess that was more that two words)
    :rolleyes:

    Anything that suggests banning anything at all I guess.... Unless it concerned erm.. necrophilia etc... It would still have to be a pretty convincing argument though :D
